This is my 100th post in TN.
Sylvia communis Latham 1787

Sylvia communis is a small passerine bird in the family Sylviidae. It is a typical warbler which has distinct male and female plumages. Both sexes are mainly brown above and buff below, with chestnut fringes to the secondary remiges. The adult male has a grey head and a white throat. The female lacks the grey head, and the throat is duller.
It is a widespread and common species which breeds throughout Europe and across much of temperate western Asia. It is strongly migratory, and winters in tropical Africa, Arabia and Pakistan. This is a bird of open country and cultivation, with bushes for nesting. The nest is built in low shrub or brambles, and 3-7 eggs are laid. Like most "warblers", it is insectivorous, but will also take berries and other soft fruit.

In Cyprus Sylvia communis is a very common passage migrant.

Hello Christodoulos

Congratulations to your 100th post in TN,
an excellent photo of the Whitethroat,
with fine POV and the way it is framed
on the image, beautiful eye-contact,
great focus sharpness and details, TFS


Ciao Christodoulos. Super pic in razor details and sharp. DOF and focus are perfect. TFS.


Hello Christodoulos,

You captured well this bird by good focus, excellent tone/sharpness and a good composition, it's impressive for being united by a shade that settles down and is bright. It has lovely eyes and smart shape. And, the contrast between the front with clear image and the background with blurred ones draws out a good effect for the whole.
